Chargers left tackle King Dunlap arrested for violating protective order

Chargers left tackle King Dunlap was arrested last night in Nashville, for violating an order of protection filed by his girlfriend.

He has posted bond and was released from jail, and his lawyer told WKRN the issue was a “misunderstanding,” after he went to the girlfriend’s house to get some clothes.

“This event was a misunderstanding between the parties as to what was allowed under the order,” attorney Worrick Robinson said. “They had been discussing a joint resolution. This was not an egregious event, but two parties trying to come to a mutual understanding.

“Unfortunately a literal reading of the order meant absolutely no contact, and we trust the facts will resolve all issues in a favorable way for Mr. Dunlap.”

Neighbors apparently called police when they saw Dunlap’s car in the woman’s driveway.

    Wow, the virtual arrest meter didn’t make it 24 hours before the reset. Revis now Dunlap.

    if the order was intended to allow contact, it would have been included in the literal wording of it.

    whatever happened to say what you mean and mean what you say?

    Go back to San Diego. We don’t want the Chargers here in LA.

    Its just domestic violence, the league doesn’t care about that. Goodell’s cronies are already working to bury this as a non-incident

    “Misunderstanding” must mean that King Dunlap can’t read.

    So you’re saying it isn’t always good to be the King?

    No need to have a days without an arrest meter when it’s constantly on 0.

    Of course because a starting left tackle in the NFL can’t afford to buy some clothes somewhere all while avoiding issues/jail. :/

    His attorney said he did nothing wrong, so that’s good enough for me!

    Have no clue what the truth is here – and we’ll never know for sure – but why assume that only the guy is in the wrong? I’ve seen it many times in divorce cases: the woman insists on protective orders and the man agrees, then once it’s in place the woman invites contact or violates it herself, but runs to the police when she decides she doesn’t like the way the contact she initiates is going.

    Yes, he was wrong to violate the order, just like his attorney said. But maybe there’s a more human side to this story.

    BTW I have to wonder what the cops thought when they show up and see a guy 6′ 9″ and 350 lbs!
